Student Training & Support

Student Training & Support

Both undergraduate and graduate students can receive training in the methods and tools of the social sciences, work as members of research teams or pursue independent projects through SSRI.

Students are encouraged to attend SSRI’s workshops; check out our list of upcoming workshops. SSRI can also provide training targeted to the needs of a particular class or research team. For more information about our workshops or to request a training event for your group, please contact Alexandra Cooper.

For face-to-face advice on a research project, drop by SSRI's Connection Bar, open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays during the academic year. Staffed by advanced graduate students and postdoctoral scholars with expertise in both quantitative and qualitative methods and tools, the Connection Bar is a place to get help developing a testable hypothesis, advising on how to craft a survey or use a statistical package, conducting a content analysis or recommending online resources that can help you develop research skills at your own convenience.

The Research Connect website allows students to identify faculty who have projects needing motivated undergraduate and graduate student researchers.

Targeted support is available to facilitate student research training and projects.
